Subject: Wood for _____!
Short little film that says that even if we run out of oil we can always turn to wood for everything! And thats a good thing, for the boys on the front line are eating up Americas recources. So get ready for wood this and wood that (and the narrator makes sure you know), because its coming to store near you!

Subject: What if everything in the world turned to wood?
Kinda of a strange war related film regarding wood and wood products from the US Forest Service. The film starts out with a bombastic narrator emphasizing the importance of wood for the war effort, with the constant repeating of the mantra "Wood for war, wood for peace." All the various uses for wood are listed off. The concept begins to get stretched a bit thin when it starts making claims like plastics are based from wood products and shows a woman wearing clothes that supposedly made from forest products.

However, the real point of this film isn't towards the end. Since wood is so important, it is necessary that you do not carelessly set forest fires and take away from the necessary resources and manpower. The blaring music and booming narrator just makes the whole thing overblown.

However, there is still some very nice color footage of 1940s forestry and wood practices, including shots inside a mill and logging trucks.
